dbmom99 Posted December 13, 2005 Share Posted December 13, 2005 I'm new to the site. Well new to posting. I've been reading for about a week now, trying to get up the nerve to post. My name is Brandi. My dad, who is 48, was diagnoised with SCLC in October. He went into the emergency room with kidney stones and they found his cancer then. It showed up in his liver where they first noticed it on CT scan. It has metastasized to his liver and bones. He has been on chemotherapy for 3 cycles, getting ready to start the 4th cycle tomorrow depending on if the chemo is working according to the tests they did last week. They are doing the Carboplatin and VP-16 combo. The dr today upped his nausea medicine to Zofran. He is on Morphine fast release pills right now. And is also on a medicine (I forgot the name right now) to keep his sodium levels up. They had plunged down to 107 when he was in the hospital. The dr he went to today wouldn't say anymore about the tests that he done last week other than his bone scan lit up like a light bulb, her exact words. A little more about me. I'm 23 and have a 6 year old son named Dakota. Married to Chris. I have a 18 year old brother named Matt, who is unable to be home during all of this due to his just joining the Navy. He is now in CT doing his schooling to do what he wants to do. Sorry that this post got so long. But I hope to find some great support here.
